DAB uncertain future for local stations

The Future of local radio stations is in doubt as plans to switch to DAB come to fruition.

Guardian media reports this morning that the Lib Dem MP,Alistair Carmichael,said there was

widespread concern" from small independent stations that the digital economy bill would leave them facing an uneven playing field.Over 100 local stations still do not have a clear digital migration path and are likely to be consigned to an uncertain future on the analogue spectrum once digital switchover has occurred. It is important the government addresses this matter before committing to analogue switch-off."
